Pink X: The Passion of the Purple Plumeria
After a long and meandering journey down Pink memory lane, we’re almost there! Just a week (and two days) until The Passion of the Purple Plumeria appears in stores….
Of course, Miss Gwen couldn’t countenance the thought of hers being the only book left out of the Pink round-up.
Who: Miss Gwendolyn Meadows and Colonel William Reid
When: Spring, 1805
What: Take two missing girls, one parasol-wielding spinster turned spy, one retired colonel, add a dash of adventure and stir. When Lizzy Reid and Agnes Wooliston disappear from their Bath boarding school, Miss Gwendolyn Meadows is on the case– but is she prepared to collaborate with the irritatingly charming Colonel William Reid?
Historical Cameos: Charles Maurice de Talleyrand-Perigord (aka Talleyrand), Napoleon’s foreign minister.
As for my favorite scene… you’ll just have to wait until the book is out for that. And I can’t wait to hear yours!
Received my copy from the Poison Pen and started it yesterday. Thanks so much for autographing and setting this up. I have loved all the remembrances through recaps, and of course all of the wonderful graphics from each book. Really wish there was a way to create mugs for each book from those graphics. What fun it would be to choose a different “Pink” mug for tea and reading each evening! Any way to do this?
I read it through the Goodreads contest. I’ll have to say my favourite scene (spoiler-free for those of you who haven’t read it yet) was Gwen wielding her parasol sword. I literally laughed out loud. The final scene at Selwick Hall was also rather entertaining (mostly for Lizzy–will she have her own book soon? Kat?)
From the modern story, I liked the last part where we figure out all the answers (especially to who Plumeria is.)
